Second visit here. Marion could not have been more accomodating. After leaving a disappointing cottage at Troutbeck booked through Sally's Cottages we were very fortunate to get a room at Goodwin house for the remainder of our holiday. Rooms very comfortable and exceptionally clean. Fab breakfast. Great location. Hospitality perfect. Would thoroughly recommend.

I stayed for one night as part of a walking holiday in the Lake District. The room was clean, breakfast (a vegetarian cooked one) excellent and the owner friendly and informative. She recommended a nearby Italian restaurant which was also extremely good. Also the cheapest place I stayed at so great value.
